How To Get Here

North Tyneside is in North East England to the east of Newcastle upon Tyne.

It is the gateway to the region for people arriving at the Port of Tyne and for anyone wanting to explore Tyneside and Northumberland.

Here's how to find us:

By car

Travelling from the north on the A1, take the A19 (Tyne Tunnel) and follow the signs to either the A191 (Whitley Bay) or the A1058 (Tynemouth). From the south on the A1 take the A194 and then the A19 (Tyne Tunnel). Once through the Tyne Tunnel take the A1058 towards Tynemouth. There is a toll payable at the Tyne Tunnel. If you haven't visited the area in a while, you may not be aware that there are now two tunnels, resulting in considerably faster journey times.

By air

Newcastle International Airport is around 30 minutes away by car. There is a Metro Station too - the journey time to the coast is around 45 minutes (change at South Gosforth).

By rail

Newcastle Central Station is on the East Coast Mainline with regular services to and from London, Edinburgh, York and beyond. Take the Metro to the coast or hop in a taxi.

By cycle

By coach

National Express coaches have a pick-up / drop-off point on Park Avenue in Whitley Bay.

By sea

DFDS Seaways operate daily sailings to and from Ijmuiden - the port of Amsterdam.
